US - Palm Beach, Florida
La Follia, the only direct ocean-to-lake estate on Palm Beach, is unparalleled as one of the most significant properties on the Island. Built 24 feet above sea level, with 210 feet of direct water frontage, this Italian Renaissance home is reminiscent of the Palm Beach’s heyday Fatio Era of the 1920s and offers staggering views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. The property echoes a feel of grandeur and glamour beginning with the entrance, marked by an opulent wrought-iron gate, decorative archway and stately elephant sculptures, leading through a canopy of Banyan trees to the porte cochere, and into a two-story coquina limestone entrance foyer. With thoughtful design and placement by renowned architect Jeff Smith, the main hall opens to reveal the multiple grand living areas on the first floor. Weaving elegant details such as tri-colored marble floors, intricate coffered paneled ceilings and custom millwork with the indigenous and natural materials of stone and coquina to anchor the structure to the surrounding terrain.
